The narrow path towards Mt Toolbrunup inclines through fragrant green enclosing wood. He forged ahead, I kept up best I could. A tumbled boulder slope leads ever up.
Parrot In Paradise
Parrot in the cyclone eye spread his sodden wings to dry. Wall of wind approaching sly snapped him up and flung him high.
The couple ordered flat whites in the café. “I bet there’ll be spillage in the saucer”, she said, watching waiters dash past the table. “Well, there was a time, ” he said, “when pouring
The diner nibbles biscuit because a stealthy misfit has finished off the brisket and the pie. His methods are erratic
A duel, only mist will intervene, Two men, a line of numbers span between, The field in which they stand, a complex plane; Which algebraic equations set this scene?
Buying a Car
I wanted a car when I wearied of walking. With savings in hand, I left home to peruse. The dealer was helpful, bright-eyed and fast-talking. He offered two models from which I could choose.
A deviation split our primate past and catalysed the rise of modern man. Inquirers scan a triple epoch span to piece together how it came to pass:

Potentially connected to a Field
Some Fractal of Mechanics may unfurl
A Calculus of fuzzy-logic yield.
Quadratic Taurus bulls do not Equate
So don't get Knotted arguing the toss
Although with cows they'll gladly permutate
